Overlooking the most famous trout stream in the world, the Frogtown Fishing Shack is ideal for fishermen, hunters, hikers, skiers, and sportsmen of all ages. The property includes a full quarter-mile of Brodhead Creek, so there's plenty of room for everyone. And because the Upper Brodhead is all privately-owned, you have the Creek to yourselves. Downstairs, there's a library with a fireplace, a billiards area and a home theater with a full-kitchen wet bar. There's also a workshop area, full bathroom and a utility room with a clothes washer and drier. The bunk beds are on this level, and we keep a couple of fold-up cots on hand, too. Upstairs, there are two big bedrooms as well as a loft bedroom above the kitchen. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and walk-in closet.

Upstairs, there are two big bedrooms as well as a loft bedroom above the kitchen. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. Another full bathroom is in the hallway to the guest bedroom. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with dishwasher, range/oven, ice-dispensing refrigerator and various appliances. A large outside deck in the front of the house has two seating areas and overlooks the creek. The smaller deck in the back of the house features the grill, fire pit and outdoor dining area. Please enjoy the fireplace in the living room! We provide fresh linens and towels. When you arrive, you will find the refrigerator stocked with fresh basics: eggs, butter, condiments and spices. On your way up Route 447, you can get everything you need at the Weis supermarket in East Stroudsburg. If you're thinking of having a party, we can even provide a cook and a server who can handle everything. Now, the Fishing Shack is a lovely, new place, but it's not perfect. First, you can only count on 2 bars of 4G cell service, and the WiFi service is somewhat erratic. The TVs all have USB ports, so you might consider loading up a couple of movies on your tablet. You'll find plenty of DVD movies in the library. Second, the downstairs rec areas are filled with taxidermy specimens, so if mounted deer heads, trophy fish and stuffed bears bother you, you're going to want to stay upstairs. Third, there are no goofball amenities like an air hockey table or pinball machines. No unsanitary germ farms like a sauna or jacuzzi, either. At the end of your stay, you may leave the dishes in the sink, the sheets on the beds, and the trash on the front porch. Unless we find some serious damage issues, your deposit will be refunded within an hour or two. The Frogtown Fishing Shack will be a wonderful place to spend a few days. It's close to all the regional attractions, very private, very clean, and exceptionally furnished for your comfort and amusement. We're finally done with the renovations and open for your business.More

Just got home from a fantastic weekend getaway at the Frogtown fishing shack in Canadensis Pennsylvania. I heard how great this place was through a friend, and saying I wasn't disappointed is an understatement. As far as hosts go, you couldn't ask for better than...More
